to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the affair between general petraeus and paula broadwell. meantime a team of fbi agents searched broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, overnight, and spent nearly five hours there wrapping up just after 1:00 in the morning. "wall street journal" is reporting that the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation himself is under investigation. in part because he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. jill kelley, the woman who kicked off all of this investigation, by complaining about the e-mails that she was getting from the petraeus mistress. so the agent, who knew kelley, allegedly sent those pictures before any investigation began, but as you can see, the story is getting much more complicated. we've got team coverage of the breaking news this morning. chris lawrence is at the pentagon. chris, i don't even know where to begin because there's so much to talk about. let's start with general allen. what's the implications of this -- of him being brought in to petraeus scandal and what has he said about it

it as simple as we can. sources tell nbc news the fbi recently began investigating complaints from a woman who said she'd been receiving harassing emails. that investigation led to the discovery of emails between petraeus and his biographer that indicated they were having an affair. retired general david petraeus resigns in disgrace from his post as head of the cia after acknowledging what he called unacceptable behavior. he admitted to cheating on his wife of more than 37 years, holley pa trahal holly petraeus. it involved an affair between petraeus and another woman who was not related to petraeus. she complained to the fbi because she felt she was being harassed. the families, officials say, were traced to paula bradwell. that's what led to the discovery of her intimate relationship with the fore-star general. >> it's so politically sensitive that my guess the decision was made near or at the top level of the fbi to sit down with general petraeus and have a discussion with him and let him know that this information had been discovered. >> reporter: broadwell, who is also married, had openly
in tampa. kelley reportedly went to the fbi when she received those messages, and that sparked an investigation that uncovered the affair with broadwell. kelley released a statement last night that reads, "we and our family have been friends with general petraeus and his family for over five years. we respect his and his family's privacy and want the same for us and our three children." >> they insist petraeus had nothing to do with petraeus' testimony about the deadly attack on the embassy in benghazi. the committee chair dianne feinstein ss petraeus may still be called to testify at a later date. >>> parties are ready to negotiate to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. senior democrats and republicans say they're confident they can reach a deal on a spending plan by the end of the year to avoid billions of dollars in tax hikes and spending cuts. republicans have said they're willing to allow some tax hikes to end the budget stalemate. democrats say they're also willing to cut spending. >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that
to accepting that resignation. but david petraeus felt it was a matter of honor. we're also told that the fbi had been alerted to this and was looking into this issue in the small picture it means david petraeus will not testify next week in many of those committees on the situation in benghazi and what happened. it means that his number two will now take over the cia on an interim basis. and it really throws the president's national security team into a bit of flux just days after the election. [ technical difficulties ] >> unfortunately that tape is not working right now. we're going to try to fix that problem. and let me just underscore, chris, how significant this is right now in terms of not only the intelligence community but the u.s. military as you know general petraeus a graduate of west point, highly decorated four-star general served in iraq, was called on on an emergency basis to try to fix the situation in afghanistan, had a brilliant, brilliant career, a scholar, a professor of international affairs at west point after getting a ph.d. from princeton. this is really a shocking de
director general petraeus' affair. the fbi launched the investigation who jill kelley, an unpaid social liaison at an air force base in florida, complained about receiving harassing e-mails from petraeus' biographer paula broadwell. agents later discovered broadwell and petraeus were having an affair. eric cantor's spokesperson says the congressman knew about the relationship late last month, but president obama apparently didn't know about it until last thursday, when petraeus offered his resignation. >> this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> seems it's gone on for several months, and now it appears they're saying the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> jill kelley and her husband released a statement last night asking for privacy right now. congress may still eventually call petraeus to answer questions about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, even though he's no longer head of the cia. petraeus was supposed to testify this week
number of e-mails allen exchanged with jill kelly, who sparked the fbi investigation into broadwell and petraeus, show no evidence of any sexual relations. but are friendly and, perhaps, a bit flirtatious. in one note, kelly telling allen, she saw him on tv. he responds, thanks, dear. you're a sweetheart. meanwhile, david petraeus' sudden departure as cia director, has created lots of questions on capitol hill. especially that looming issue, the attack in benghazi, on a cia facility there. some senators still want to question petraeus about what went wrong. >> i know that we're interested in hearing from him. probably in front of the intelligence committee, which i also sit on. >> reporter: it is possible that petraeus could eventually testify, george. but that will definitely not happen this week. >> congress ramping up the questions, even as the fbi continues to investigate possible crimes. and abc senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, has exclusive details on that. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. abc news has learned that paula broadwell, who alleg
